10K: できる! It’s Possible!

今日の結果、66分3秒。友人ご夫妻と一緒にコースを走りました。このタイムは私の目標でした。今日、達成できちゃったんだ。すごい!Today’s run result was 66:03. I ran the race course with two of my friends who are married to each other. I was working hard to achieve this “time”, and I made it. Yay!

1km毎のペースを見ると、一目瞭然で、ペース配分ができてないことがわかります。最初、ご夫妻に追いつこうと早く走ってしまって、中間以降、グッとスピードが衰えました。 Look at my pace for each 1km split. Gosh, I can’t maintain a consistent pace well at all. I ran too fast at the beginning trying to follow my friends. Because of that, my pace slowed down a lot after the mid point.

ちょうど6-7kmは一番キツイ上り坂なので、仕方がないとも言えますが、9km、10kmあたりはもう力が尽きそう。でも、最後200-300mぐらいからとっくに走り終えていた友人が一緒に走ってくれました。最後のダッシュのためです。 The most difficult section of the race is around 6-7 km, going up hill constantly. So I slowed down, but the area around 9-10 km is flat. I could have run faster. My friends, who finished running much earlier, waited for me at the last 200-300 m point before the finish, and ran with me to sprint all the way to the finish.

今日のタイムは彼らの声援の賜物です。でも、何はともあれこのペースをキープできたらレースは大丈夫。コーチにも早速知らせました。ベスト3、きっとできるよ! I must say that I owe them for today’s result. In any case, I should be all right if I can keep this pace. I texted my trainer about it. I am very much in the running to finish in the top three!

レースの日まで、あと16日。 16 more days to the race day.
